That may sound spooky to some people, but what does it mean for a believer? You are body, soul, and spirit and you can be, or you are already filled with the Holy Spirit. Before you were a believer you did pretty much anything you felt like doing. You were merely restrained by the laws…

Farmers in the area probably decided months ago which crops they were going to plant this season. For me, it’s not so much which plants I’ll stick in the ground, but where I’ll plant them in the garden. I like nice, neat rows with space between them so I can walk, water and pick weeds….

“Is it really supposed to be this difficult? Wasn’t the Christian life supposed to be one that was free of difficulty?” “Whoa, whoever told you that?” “Well, no one told me that, but I assumed life would be better as a believer than it was as a sinner!” Life is really better as a follower…

The greatest work of the Holy Spirit in our lives is the production of the “Christ Like Life”. “Well, what does that look like?” you may ask. It looks like a well-manicured tree, that is healthy and bearing lots of fruit. When others watch our lives and pick away at our lives they discover fruit….

We have all had those moments when all of a sudden we “get it”. That experience is as varied as a child who first understands a simple math problem to the homeless beggar who finally “sees” what got him into the mess he is in. We call them AHA moments. Spiritually speaking we need to…

Imagine being prayed for by a great man of God. People have lined up in long queues just to have mighty evangelists pray over them. You’ve been prayed for by one of God’s greatest servants – Paul the Apostle. I’d like to peel back the layers of his prayer and discover what was important enough…

Obstacles are those things that limit our progress. They make it difficult to achieve our goals even to the point of potential failure. We are not without great help! Some of our obstacles are derived from a very crafty enemy. However, Paul tells us, “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in…

A common word to the seven churches spoken to in the Book of Revelations is, “He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the church!” The Lord expects us to be listening to His direction from above. Often Paul said the Holy Spirit told him to go or not…
